Baby Dies After Teen Mom Gave Him Baby Formula Laced with Fentanyl

A Florida teen is now facing multiple charges after allegedly feeding her infant son baby formula containing the highly potent synthetic opioid drug fentanyl.

Reports state that the 17-year-old mother was preparing to put the baby to sleep when she mixed a bottle of baby formula. The teen reportedly retrieved a pill bottle from the bathroom containing what she thought at the time was cocaine and added it to the baby’s formula.

She put the infant to sleep, but officers were later called to the home after the child would not wake up. The infant was later pronounced dead after being rushed to the hospital.

The baby boy’s death was officially ruled a fentanyl overdose on Monday by the medical examiner. The examiner disclosed that the infant had 27 nanograms of fentanyl in his system, enough to kill ten people.

Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper disclosed that adults were present at the home at the time of the June 26 incident, and more charges could follow as the investigation is ongoing.
